About The Book

Once in a great while there appears a baseball player who transcends the game and earns universal admiration from his fellow players from fans and from the American people. Such a man was Hank Greenberg whose dynamic life and legendary career are among baseballs most inspiring stories. The Story of My Life tells the story of this extraordinary man in his own words describing his childhood as the son of Eastern European immigrants in New York; his spectacular baseball career as one of the greatest home-run hitters of all time and later as a manager and owner; his heroic service in World War II; and his courageous struggle with cancer. Tall handsome and uncommonly good-natured Greenberg was a secular Jew who during a time of widespread religious bigotry in America stood up for his beliefs. Throughout a lifetime of anti-Semitic abuse he maintained his dignity becoming in the process a hero for Jews throughout America and the first Jewish ballplayer elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
